Same ole' story...ripe bananas need to be used. BOOM! They wanted to be used, so I used them good. And might I say...even they would like the outcome. I did you proud bananas!
Heavenly Frosted Banana Bars have just the right amount of ingredients, which makes it so hard to resist all those wonderful mellow tones of banana, vanilla Greek yogurt, vanilla and cream cheese frosting....awe yum!
Long story short?
I gobbled them up like nobody's business.
No wonder my husband was like..."You're eating them again?"
Umm..Crap! *Busted again Folks!*
(I highly think he needs to stay out of my biz...ya know?)
The really creamy, divine cream cheese frosting paired with light and fluffy banana bars is freakin' ducky! 🙂
If you don't know what 'ducky' is? It means, it's all good!
So...It's not too over the top, and it's the perfect snacking bars for afternoon. The cake bars have a sponge-like texture, it sort of reminds me of Twinkies only wayyyyy better! (And without all the preservatives!)
Double the recipe of this Heavenly Frosted Banana Bars and you get a nice large sheet cake for large gatherings. Perfectly acceptable for breakfast or as I like to think, anytime 24/7.
So who's ready for a slice of heaven or two?
Hope you enjoy! Happy Baking.
